Like many successful young people who have strived towards achieving their goals and ambitions, there is always additional costs to consider when competing in competitions in other parts of the world. To compete at the world championships, Luke will have to fins the funds to cover transport, travel, accommodation, insurance and even Team GB competition kit.

Luke said: ' The Inspire Awards small grant will mean so much to me and help to essentials items like kit. I'm really trying hard to raise as much money as possible to enable me to compete – it is my dream,'

'The competition takes place over three days and there is an opportunity to reach the grand final which means I would be one of the best karate athletes in the world in my age group. I would like to stay at the top of my sport over the next 12 months so that I keep getting selected for Team GB and continue to improve on a path to senior competition so I can be an Olympian. This is my ultimate goal. ' he added.

Simon Taylor, Inspire Awards project lead, said: Luke's is a truly impressive application and we are delighted to try and help him to fulfil his dreams and goals.'We wish him every success.'
